2010 Ecsite Conference

The German Occupational Safety and Health Exhibition (DASA)
Friedrich-Henkel-Weg 1-25
2 June 2010 - 4 June 2010
Exploring risk

In 2010, the Ecsite Conference met the European Capital of Culture in Dortmund, Germany’s green metropolis. The Conference was hosted by DASA. The year’s most important European gathering for science centres and museums will be hosted by DASA, a unique institution combining a traditional museum and modern science centre with a distinct creative flair, to provide an innovative experience of yesterday’s, today’s and tomorrow’s world of work.

Have a look at the conference pictures on Ecsite's Flickr account.

The conference was the opportunity to look at the world of our own work, with three days of challenging sessions and heated discussion, social events and business opportunities, preceded by two days of in-depth pre-conference meetings and workshops.

Here is how DASA, the host, promoted the event:

"Whether you come from a science centre or museum, a natural history museum, a university, an aquarium, a zoo, a research institute or a private company, the network’s 21st Annual Conference is the date for your calendar.

We also invite you to discover the secrets of the former ”steel city”, now a place for innovation and technological development. There is plenty more to Dortmund than beer and football, and we plan to give you a real taste of the city.

We look forward to meeting you in Dortmund, to make the most of the atmosphere of creativity and culture for our 21st Annual Conference."




DASA is an educational institution and at the same time a world of experience. It has a newly-constructed exhibition building offering exhibition space of 13,000 m².
